I been very content that my traffic has increased significantly lately, but I am coming close to 1000 views in adsense today,however, my CTR went to hell
It was not this in the previous days with similar traffic. Boy does this make paranoid...
Well, it was a good day for me.
Bad days happen. Good days happen. You-know-what happens.
I think it can vary widely. Today was my best day yet with $6.03 from Adsense. However you might have just had a lot of visitors with 'banner blindness'.
Actually I think I know why. Somebody enlighten me if I am wrong. I think when you publish a new hub and if it gets a lot of traffic, it may not do well at first cause the ads may not be relevant.
I think it may take a certain period of time for the ads to be better optimized for the visitors.
Today was my best Adsense day to date. Hopefully this trend will continue!
I had the most impressions and page views to date, and made $0.00.
179 queries, no clicks
I've had a decent amount the last few days, but I have noticed that with my hubs things tend to follow trends. Towards the end of the month, I get almost no clicks - then when a new month starts again I'm inundated. I usually see clicks fall off around major holidays as well, but I figure that's due to people not spending as much time online..
I wouldn't get all paranoid over one or two days though.. if it lasted a month, well, then I think that's when I'd start biting nails..
Many say that holidays can mean less time spent online, however, I had a record day on Halloween. Of course every Holiday is different so people may be in a different mindset and such
Ya know, now that I think of it, I do get a few more hits on the "ghost story" articles I have on Halloween - but the rest of them don't get noticed at all.
But you're right - I'd rather be out enjoying my holiday instead of sitting on a computer.
Holidays are notorious for erratic and unpredictable online behavior. So is the arrival of daylight savings time, and the depths of summer.
Get used to it, and start looking at your stats in terms of weeks and months, not days. Daily variations don't mean much in the long term and they only serve to make you crazy in the short term.
Though I always do have a half second of panic when I change something and earnings go down right after.
(I have a self-built CMS and can change every page on my site almost instantly)
Sometimes I really have screwed something up, but usually it's just one of those little dips that just happen now and them. The next day will be back to normal.
Yeah your right, sometimes I just go into a small paranoid mode lol. Things over the course of the months have gotten a lot better, its just some of those weird days ya know..
i agree with relache- although I do check my stats daily (sometimes more) it always seems to make sense by the end of the month
Yesterday was a good day! one of the best for me!
I'd been wondering about that too, had a pretty bad week. Views cut in half, adsense practically disappeared, but its picking back up a little. Trying to have patience and look at the bigger picture, but I confess I have been checking adsese every few hours hoping to see more than two cents on there!
Thanks for the advice on holiday jumps/slowdowns. I have already been noticing that I don't get much traffic on weekends. Which is funny because thats when I spend MORE time online and reading articles and hubs!

What could be the cause of having extremely good days with adsense such as high Pay per click, high CTR, and etc....Then of course, you have the bad days. Very low CTR and or Pay per click....When I see bad days, it...

What are folks opinions on Kontera these days?
by John Welford7 years ago
Please forgive my ignorance, folks, but I'm really not sure that I understand how Adsense works. I can see that clicks on Ads give you cash, but why is there also a running total for "impressions"?Firstly,...

How long does it take to make money with hubpages? After 160 views on 10 hubs they tell me I have 0 clicks. Is something wrong?

Has anyone else had this problem by any chance? I have not had any Google earnings for 4 days in a row which is unheard of.Even on my worst days I will get at least .01.The clicks are there, I can access my Google...

Over the past few months I've averaged about a click per day, generally paying 50 cents or maybe a dollar.A few weeks ago I had a months worth of clicks in just a few days - none paid anything and I'm sure Google...
